They're talking about 9 + 12 = 21.
Those are all negatives...

Right now I need 22 positives, 21 to cancel out the negatives and 1 just to have a positive...

A rant:

It's a very poor supporter of football who would want to see us kicked any harder than we already have been, by adding more insult to injury for something that can and may happen to any team in any league, any season. Even supporters of those who dislike us must surely know that "there but for the grace of God" (and the merciless attitude of the greedy), go I. It's always the least offenders, the fans, who are really getting punished in the end; the Ken Andersons' will always get their pound of flesh and the managers and players will just move on and still keep drawing big wages elsewhere just because they can(how much are they actually worth for finishing last in the egg and spoon race and how many actually care about who supplies their mortgage, holidays abroad and flash transport needs as long as somebody does?)

Football has to change and stop being a bandwagon for T.V moguls like Sky, Virgin Media and all the rest to ride along on and laugh at the mugs. ( Oh, don't forget august bodies like .E.F.L, F.A etc,) Sport in general has been well and truly exploited with the public doing the paying, and T.V licences mean less than nothing with every major event kidnapped and held to ransom. Trophies are bought, not won, with only the mega-rich clubs in with any real chance. There isn't one single cup, shield or vase, bowl or whatever, that likely costs more than ten grand yet makes millions to sit in a cabinet for bragging rights..

And running round a field for ninety minutes and kicking a ball into a net one more time than your opponents is what it's really all about. Just thought I'd mention it. :D

I wonder if the EFL are waiting to see the new owners installed and if they make the right noises show some leniency? If not, then it's disgraceful it's not yet sorted.
I'm leaning towards the latter scenario.

Yeah, I must admit that the longer it lingers on, the more hopeful I am that we might get away with a suspension.

I couldn't care less if it's another 12 points to be honest. I just want to see a Bolton team playing next season

Admins think it will be further points. 3 is what they’ve suggested to interested parties.

And they are competent to say this, because?...
Fxck what David Rubin & Partners think. It's what the EFL are going to do that counts, not what a bunch of accountants may or may not speculate...
And who are these "interested parties" ?... :roll:

i don't care how many points they deduct -- the only thing that counts right now is that we continue to exist
even though things are looking bleak right now I am still confident (god knows why) that a deal will be cut at the last minute which lets us survive
On another note ..... Ken who bought us for a quid..... and hardly put a penny in...... now thinks hes owed 7.5 million..... wheres that one come from ?

When does the EFL adjudication panel sit? I thought it was supposed to be this Tuesday gone, or is it next Tuesday?

I think they'll give us six points back because Shaun Harvey's a c*nt.

Seriously though, they've got a huge pr problem right now, and hammering blameless new owners for a situation many are partly blaming them for would not help them.

Just imagine if we get the squad bedded, into our stride, start smashing teams and make a charge for the play offs, only to get a points deduction and miss out.

It will be ace and we can then doubly smash everyone down here again next season 👍

Up the shithousing whites!

It's an incredibly futile question. We'll get deducted as many points as the EFL decide, The more pertinent point is, shouldn't the EFL be busting it's balls to help club's get their shit together rather than tossing them out of the league?

Of course. They let the Bury (and our own) situation drag on far too long. And it gives us this mess.

Easier to sweep it under the rug.

I suspect there will be an investigation but what will it achieve without an independent body?
